Philips GA437 Semi-Automatic, Circa 1977

A collection of images from a professionally serviced semi-automatic belt driven turntable from France. Has an isolated free floating suspension system which separates the platter and tonearm from the subchassis. Very few inexpensive turntables have this feature as this is normally only found on very expensive ones. It is in excellent condition and features a built in stylus force gauge and unusually large anti-skating adjustment ring near the base of the tonearm. Plays at speeds of 33 1/3, 45 r.p.m. The build quality is surprisingly good. Has a Audio Technica entry level cartridge that sounds good with very little wear on the stylus needle itself.

The camera flash makes the unit look less polished than it really is. You can zoom in on the images if you mouse over them. During autoplay zoom is disabled.

Valued in the range of $100 - $125
